About Patty

Call 719-207-2100 to reserve !!! In 1985 I came to Chaffee County to work ( Im a nurse ) I found a wonderful way of life. I raised my children here . I have been fortunate to learn business and share my properties with many wonderful visitors. As a New England native I have enjoyed the many outdoor activities in this area. I love to ski, hike , raft and have settled into the small town atmosphere. The best part of Colorado is the predominate sunshine. We have sunny days year round with robin blue skies. This lifts your sprit everyday ! Thanks for coming , Patty , John Michael and Natalie

Patty purchased this house in 2008

Why Patty chose Nathrop

I always wanted a property near Mt. Princeton with geothermal hot water. We were blessed with this house which was located on Chalk Creek and had a geothermal spring that produces 120 degree water at six gallons per minute. That's over 300 gallons an hour and over 4000 gallons a day of mineral enriched hot therapeutic soaking water.

What makes this house unique

Imagine your own private natural Hot Spring ! Creekside is nestled in the pines. Its very private. Chalk Creek rolls by. Other activities are endless, such as hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, rafting, rock hounding, horse back riding, mountaineering, and on and on and on.

At night the stars are spectacular !

Just what I was looking for.

  • 4 of 5

This is an awesome spot not done any justice by the existing pics.

The house was clean and more than what we needed.

No last minute runs to the grocery store for anything.

The garage let us keep all our kit outside with easy access.

The Colorado Trail being less than a few miles up the road was spot on.

The only thing missing was getting a fire going outside.

Fire danger was high so we probably would not have done that anyway, but a dedicated and manicured spot for that activity is necessary.

We even got some fly fishing in simply walking down and wading through the creek from the house. The water was not as deep as you would want, but peaceful nonetheless.

Great, great place to stay.

Perfect weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us rented this for a long weekend in September for my husbands and friends birthday. The house is amazing and surrounding grounds were breathtaking. Thoroughly enjoyed the private hot springs as well. The river each morning was simply spectacular! Definitely coming back! Best place to stay in Buena Vista/Nathrop area!!

I'm almost afraid to tell people how nice this place was for fear that I won't be able to get it again if it gets too popular! This place was fantastic. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing spot to get away from the world for a while this is it. I had some friends who live in the east visiting us and wanted to give them a tour of our beautiful state and they couldn't have been more impressed. First of all, it's on a beautiful private lot on the Chalk River with it's own private hot springs pool. Hard to beat that but once you go inside I was blown away. Spacious would be quite an understatement. This is not a cabin, it's a house. Vaulted ceiling in the great room(living room doesn't quite do it justice) with two large couches and two recliners. A dining table that can easily seats 10 people and a very nice kitchen with Jenn-Air appliances. This place has plenty of room for 8 people without feeling crowded.

If I had to find fault with something(since people always want to know the down side) it would be that the bathrooms were very small but since this is an older home that would be expected. Also, be aware that there is no cable or internet but to me, that was a plus!

We also greatly enjoyed that the bird feeder was right off the deck so you could watch the hundreds of birds that visited up close. They will land right on your hand to eat if you're patient!

"Imagine your Own Private Natural Hot Spring!" Creekside Hot Springs Cabin is located on 2 private acres. Chalk creek flows thru the property. The views from the large deck are of the Collegiate Peaks. The geothermal hot spring is 25 feet from the front door. Surrounded by tall pines the pool is very private. The cabin is comfortable for up to eight. There are two king beds and two twin beds in the main living area. The full finished basement has a trundle bed and queen roll away sleeper sofa. Creekside is a wonderful spot to unplug. No Wifi or cell service, however both are available a short ride away. We have a collection of DVD movies , books and games.
